Corona induced Stockholm Syndrome

Should we trust the government? Government handling of the covid crisis has created a climate of fear in the UK that is palpable. People are afraid to leave their homes. Residents of tourist towns are taking matter into their own hands, vigilante style; shooing people away with home made signs, building road blocks and setting […]

Penultimate

The last but one. It’s a curious thing to be sat here pondering a final note to you, my loyal readers. I’ve just been a walk along the beach in the heat of the midday sun. You know what they say about mad dogs and Englishmen. I spent a good deal of the walk reflecting […]

Is it safe?

The vaccine is here. Many are delighted that life can ‘get back to normal‘. Others, myself included, are more sceptical. Can a totally new vaccine that’s taken just 10 months to create from scratch really be safe? Typically, a vaccine takes 5 – 10 years of detailed figuring out, intense trials and testing.

As with the great shamanic traditions there will be a purge to remove the negative energies. It may feel at times that the world […]

Toeing the line

Way back at the beginning of the lockdown I was pretty outraged. I felt that the way the covid story was playing out in the media was deceitful. I felt that the government were playing us for fools. The facts did not match the warnings. The hype was exaggerated and there we so many inconsistencies. […]

Expert fail

The data on which the UCL models for the lockdown were based have proven to be incorrect. Neil Ferguson’s estimates have been wildly inaccurate throughout his career. The lockdown may have been for entirely avoidable. An expert fail. It would be difficult to surpass the Iraq blunder, but emerging evidence on COVID-19 suggests the experts—again: […]

Sensemaking 101

As we step int the second half of the year, the home stretch of this daily blogging challenge, I’m starting to look at sensemaking. When I started this project I intended to share my learnings as they arose. In that way the blog has evolved day by day. As this year has unfolded I’m still […]

The end of tourism as we know it

One of the ways that I make a living as a blogger is through a travel website. Since the beginning of the pandemic, demand for this destination has all but dried up. Visitor numbers to the site are way down since UK holiday makers are under lockdown. Domestic travel may return in some form over […]
